The actor/comedian's Tv host wife Dawn O’Porter gave birth to a baby boy on 25 January (15), her publicist has confirmed.

He also posted a mash-up photo of a baby sporting his beard and his wife’s haircut.

O’Porter adds, "Thanks all. He is one week old today. It’s been a beautiful week. I think we’ll definitely keep him."
